Fast & Furious star Michelle Rodriguez is hoping her recent confession about her interest in both men and women will help those who are having a difficult time dealing with their sexuality.

The usually private actress revealed last October that she has been in relationships with both men and women after years of speculation about her sexuality. On Saturday, Rodriguez served as a DJ for the afterparty at the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center's annual An Evening With Women event, and told Gay Star News she decided to come clean to inspire others to follow suit. Rodriguez said, "I'm not big on people's opinions, you know? Unless it's somebody I really respect. I don't care what people out there have to say. But I do realize the importance of having the bravery to live as who you are and I feel like a lot of people don't have that bravery. "Maybe by me opening my big fat mouth like I usually do and stepping up and owning who I am, maybe it might inspire somebody else to do the same."

Rodriguez reportedly briefly dated supermodel Cara Delevingne earlier this year.
